Construction worker killed


A construction worker was stabbed dead by his neighbor at Celine Homes Subdivision in Barangay Estefania, Bacolod City, at about 2:45 a.m. Saturday.

The fatality was identified as Rolly Mangubat, 28, of Brgy. Estefania, by Senior Inspector Benedicto Villarias, Station 4 commander, yesterday.

Police investigation showed that Rodel Gamboa stabbed Mangubat because the latter had previously choked and punched him on the head several times, Villarias said.

Gamboa stabbed Mangubat, after a verbal wrangle, Villarias said.

They were both believed to be under the influence of intoxicating liquor, Villarias said.

The Station 4 manhunt operation is on for the arrest of Gamboa, Villarias said.*SGG
